If a complaint never gets filed, it does not exist.

The Mayor and city counsel are being informed of the problem and residents are demanding a change in leadership.

A Pitchess motion is a request made by the defense in a California criminal case, such as a DUI case or a resisting arrest case, to access a law enforcement officer’s personnel information when the defendant alleges in an affidavit that the officer used excessive force or lied about the events

  1. Judicial Reform Now! Starts at the top and trickles all the way down to law enforcement. We the People should also Revoke the ‘Policeman’s Bill of Rights” This is their ticket to get away with horrendous crimes against humanity no one in power should have a different ‘Bill of Rights” Than the people!

  4. I tried to complain once after multiple corruption incidents.. I was told I’m lying and refused by Secretary at cop shop of putting out complaint. I’ve heard this happens all the time. I cussed the lady out and didn’t care if I faced arrest.
